Beautiful bird !. It's sad to know that such beauty is held captive. Thanks for sharing this - great colours...

Good morning, Malcolm. OK, done. Sorry for not having been precise.
Thanks to all of you for your comments.

Hi Emilie, this is a beautiful bird.
Can you please go into "edit this spotting" and add the bird park to the habitat field along with the fact that it was captive or in a large aviary. Is it a walk-in aviary?
